Our Ministries

Beyond Cana Ministry

Beyond Cana® is a ministry dedicated to marriage enrichment. The main program of the ministry is a weekend retreat for couples that offers the time and tools to enrich and strengthen healthy marriages—with God and His direction for us at the center. The retreat is designed to enrich the marriages of couples who want to focus on the communication, respect, love, and intimacy that are so integral to a good marriage. Each couple is given time by themselves to discuss issues important to their marriage and their relationship. A blend of spiritual and practical talks, reflection, and prayer are combined with useful tools designed to improve communication and your relationship with your spouse — even if it’s good now. All this is done from a Catholic perspective, with an understanding of marriage as a sacrament.
